When you brush your teeth, do you JUST brush your teeth?
Do stand by the sink and simply brush?
Are you present at that moment?
Women especially are taught to multi-task; to fit as much into our days as we possible can. To get things done.
It’s so easy to brush your teeth and make the bed with the other hand.
Or walk around the house and put things away.
Or start a load of laundry.
To surf the net.
It’s not easy to just stand there and simply brush your teeth.
Feeling the minty flavor of the paste.
The texture of the brush on your gums.
The peacefulness of only focusing on one thing.
I struggle to do this but I’ve been practicing.
Practicing being present in the moment.
Experiencing the NOW.
Truly – that’s all we have – is this moment. THIS one. Right here now.
So anyway…..try it.
If you’d like.
Try to just stand at the sink and brush your teeth.
Let me know how it goes.
